Publisher's Summary

In her first work of nonfiction, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood recounts her experiences on Gilmore Girls - the first and second times - and shares stories about life, love, and working in Hollywood. This collection of essays is written in the intimate, hilarious, and down-to-earth voice that made her novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe, a New York Times best seller. 
"This book contains some stories from my life: the awkward growing up years, the confusing dating years, the fulfilling working years, and what it was like to be asked to play one of my favorite characters again. You probably think I'm talking about my incredible achievement as Dolly in Hello, Dolly! as a Langley High School junior, a performance my dad called 'you're so much taller than the other kids.' But no! I'm talking about Lorelai Gilmore, who, back in 2008, I wasn't sure I'd ever see again. Also included: tales of living on a houseboat, meeting guys at awards shows, and that time I was asked to be a butt model. A hint: all three made me seasick." (Lauren Graham)
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Talking as Fast as I Can

I never have finished a book in one sitting until now, yep about 4 and a half hours and funny it didn't seem that long. I say book because on top of the audio version I just finished listening to I followed along with the book, your welcome Ms. Graham! I Laughed some and said atta girl in others for choices she made. Either version or both you can't go wrong.

As much as I love her and look to her as a mother figure, I didn't know her other than as her GG persona. But she's exactly as you would expect. She is the real life Gilmore girl. Thank you Lauren for giving me the closure (or is it?) that I needed in order to move on with my life knowing that Lorelai Gilmore really does exist.

Gilmore Girls fan

I have to admit that I am a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan and have always loved Lauren Graham. I got the audible book to listen to while I was driving, and was often seen giggling and laughing in the car. My only issue with it was the fact that she kept referring to photo's which of course in an audible book you don't get to see.
I found that really irritating and it felt like I was robbed. Like I missed out on a lot by not seeing the photo's.
Sorry about that, otherwise I loved listening to Lauren Graham reflecting on her life. She really does sound exactly like Lorelei Gilmore and listening to her made me realise how well Gilmore Girls were written.

I find her reading of this extremely annoying. I have listened for a good chunk and tried to go back to it a number of times, hoping it was just my mood, but now the thought of it just irritates me. I'd love to read the rest of the book but I just can't listen to another word. ", "type" : "Misc", "question" : "Any additional comments?", "id" : -1, "typeString" : "misc" } ]
